Meet New Agent, Christie Wilmore!
She is the newest agent to join the Midtown Realty Company Team.
If you've been out and about in the beautiful weather we've had, you might have crossed paths with Christie and not even realized it! She is the proud owner of the Scoops Ice Cream Truck. She has been making kids fly out the door with their parents in tow to cool off with an ice-cream treat for the past 8 years.
Having had the opportunity to be an entrepreneur and drive the streets of our communities, she has gotten to meet lots of fantastic people, and has become very familiar with the homes, neighborhoods, and communities. Building relationships and trust as she built her business makes her a perfect fit to take the next step in her career as a real estate agent.
When we asked her what excites her most about being a real estate agent she responded by saying "Being able to actually hear what someone wants, and being able to find that thing."
Recently, a prospective home buyer said this to Christie when she came back with homes for her to view...“Feels like you know what I’m thinking.” Christie is a great listener, that takes the needs of her clients into account with each property she shows them.
Another reason Christie is so passionate about the home selling and buying process is that she purchased her own home, and remembers the process well. She reflected back on what she knew and also what she wishes she had known.
"I bought my own first-time home. I know the things that are most important. Yards, locations, schools."
It's from her personal experience in the process that she is positioned well to help her clients through it.
Christie grew up in Angola area, and has spent the past 10 years living in Northern Chautauqua County.
She is married to her husband, Justin, who is also a new agent on the Midtown Realty Team. You'll be meeting him soon as well.
And to close our blog about getting to know Christie, we asked her some "fun facts".
Here they are!
Favorite Movie: Ace Ventura
Band: Guns N’ Roses, ACDC, and Bruno Mars
Food: Steak, Burgers
Started her very own garden this year!
And when we asked her for a parting thought, she summed it up quite nicely...
Owning your home is better than renting!

At Midtown Realty, we don't just show you houses, we match your needs with a home that fits. We do this because we understand that you aren't just buying a place to live. You are investing in a community. You are putting down roots in a neighborhood.
How do we do that?
Building relationships over time.
With that said, if you are even considering a move, we'd love to talk with you. Whether it be buying or selling a home, there is a lot to consider. It would be our honor to have that initial conversation with you, so that you have the answers you are looking for.
We are always here to show homes. Yes, that is a big part of what we do, for both our home buyers and sellers.
But sometimes you just need some perspective. You need answers. You need advice that comes from decades of experience.
We can do that too.
When your questions meet our experience, you'll see the Midtown Realty difference.
Come on over. Have a seat, and let's have a chat.
-Your friends at Midtown Realty.
Would you be interested in something that could help your home sell faster? Something that would help a potential buyer see your home as head and shoulders above any other?
There is one thing you could do, that would create that moment.
Build a "brag book".
What is that?
Exactly what it sounds like. Collect all of the information that makes your home stand out. Do you have records that show regular maintenance to various aspects to your home? Some examples are furnace/air conditioning check-ups, chimney check-ups, driveway sealing, sump pump maintenance, and gutters cleaned out.
There are many different areas of a home that need regular care. If you have been doing that, and have records on it, then include it. You can even include the company(ies) that have been your vendor of choice, with their contact information in the brag book.
When you make it easier to see that your home has been cared for, and how they can keep that ball rolling? That makes your home more attractive to a potential buyer.
So take the time to think about it, and create your home's brag book. And have some fun with it! Grab a three-ring binder, some page protectors that you can slide pertinent information in, and build away.
This attention to detail, can make your home more likely to sell.
Thanks for stopping by our blog today. It's always good to connect with you. If you are interested in learning more about the best way to have your home listed, we are only a phone call away!

When it comes time to put your house on the market, there are a few things you can do to help it really stand out. Just listing a home for sale is only part of the process. What that homes looks and feels like to a prospective buyer is what can help it sell quicker.
3 keys to help someone fall in love with your home.
A little spring cleaning goes a long way. But, don't let the process overwhelm you. In fact, make it be just the opposite. Get the whole family in on it. Play some music, order a pizza, and have a blast. The sooner your home sells, the sooner you'll be on to the next great adventure for your entire family.
Keep coming back to our blog, and we will bring you tips, advice, and ways that you can make your home be more than a listing on a page. We'll help you turn your home into a lasting impression on someone's heart.
See you soon!
